Serving Elgin and surrounding areas in Illinois, OM Medispa is led by Dr. Savitha Susarla. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how micro-needling can revitalize your overall appearance without surgery or downtime.
What is Micro-Needling?
During a typical micro-needling treatment, a handheld, pen-like device is used by our medical team to create nearly invisible microchannels in the skin surface. The tiny needles in the tip of the micro-needling device penetrate to a specific depth under the surface, stimulating a process known as Collagen Induction Therapy.
How Does Collagen Induction Therapy Work?
Collagen is an essential building block that gives skin its strength and structure. As the skin ages, collagen production decreases in the skin, leading to visible lines and wrinkles. Collagen Induction Therapy not only increases the production of this protein underneath the skin, it also tightens existing collagen fibers for a revitalized appearance from the inside out.
What Can Micro-Needling Treat?
- Visible signs of aging
- Stretch marks
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Certain cases of acne and general scarring
- Enlarged pores
- Loose skin
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- And more!
In addition, the exfoliating nature of micro-needling opens up the skin and makes it easier to absorb beneficial skincare products for maximum results.
Am I a Good Candidate for Micro-Needling?
During your consultation with Dr. Susarla and our medical team, your individual skin type and condition will be evaluated, and we will discuss your treatment options. If it is determined that micro-needling is right for you, we will create a customized treatment plan that outlines what you can expect, how many sessions you may need to achieve your aesthetic goals, and what you can do to maintain your results.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Aside from slight pinkness or flushing in treated areas, micro-needling typically carries no major side effects, and patients are usually able to return to normal activities immediately. The microchannels that are created in the skin typically leave no tell-tale signs that you have undergone treatment, requiring zero healing time and allowing you to immediately enjoy your softer, smoother skin.
